Q. If a youth successfully petitions the courts to re-enter foster care after age 18 under AB 2454 because their guardian or adoptive parent(s) no longer provide ongoing support or receive payment on their behalf, will they be eligible for Medi-Cal coverage up to age 26 or THP-Plus programs?
A. Yes, they are eligible to participate in THP-Plus and the Medi-Cal program for former foster youth until age 26. According to DSS, any foster youth who exited from the foster care system on or after his or her 18th birthday are eligible for both.
